    Just curious as to what genres and books (excuse me...texts) people were doing for English P2...
    I'm doing Drama, with The Homecoming, Medea and A Streetcar Named Desire, which aren't that bad.
    Does anyone have nightmarish things to comment on??
    Oh, and good luck, by the way.

    We did Beloved for the Oral Commentary- nightmare...I got Othello, thank god. I sympathize with the whole cultural question thing- as Medea is from whenever B.C., you can't comment on cinematic influence, stage direction, language (in translation) or anything good, and you have to learn ancient Greek dramatic terms. Bummer...

    these are sooo easy... we have really stupid texts. poetry, so the general questions are usually totally inappropriate.
    Dante, Inferno
    Elizabeth Bishop
    Gerard M. Hopkins
    W. H. Auden
    (these 3: "Collected Poems" etc.)
